On Saturday 8th June, I had the pleasure of attending the Installation of
Sister Barbra Hartman as Worthy Grand Matron and Brother Ronald Aimer
as Worthy Grand Patron and Investiture of Worthy Grand Officers of
The United Grand Chapter of Australia – Order of the Eastern Star.

The installation was held at the Cairns Colonial Club Resort and was a great
success with approx 240 members and guest in attendance.

All states of Australia were represented as well as members from many
overseas countries.

I represented Great Priory and was accompanied by my wife Lis, the VP of
Carpentaria, V E Kt Russel Marsden, Mrs Bev Marsden affiliati, V E Kt
Herb Valoniti RGSP and Kt Daniel Lock.

One must congratulate the Order of the Eastern Star for a very well
organised meeting and banquet.

On behalf of The Great Priory of Qld we extend our sincere congratulation
to all OES Officers and wish them every success for the next two years.

M.E.S. Grand Master Ted Ruska GCT
